Lily Turns 3

Time it was, I had a dream.

And you're that dream come true.

I'll take you to the mountains, I'll take you to the sea.

I'll show you how your life became a miracle to me.

You'll fly away...

Take my hand until that day.

So when they ask how far love goes...

When my job's done,

You'll be the one who knows.

Happy Birthday sweet 3 year old!

red pants no shoes | 맨발에 빨간바지: Please Find Me | 나를 찾아주세요

I came across this blog written by a Korean adoptee searching for her birth family. Turns out she actually now lives 15 minutes away from me where the Korean American population is quite large.
I know I have said this before but I hope someday Lily will feel the desire to do her own natural mother search. Yes, it is entirely up to her but in a selfish way I would give anything to have the opportunity to just say thank-you. Now who knows, perhaps it may end with a not so successful outcome but only time will tell.
Please give this video a never know who may also be searching out there. Best to you Red Pants No Shoes.

Spring, (or should I say what is supposed to be spring) has thrown us into a new phase in this parenting life of ours. I am calling it the Taxi Phase. It's a life where I often ask myself "How did I get here?" Like when I open the back of my truck and out pours all forms of sporting gear accompanied by Goldfish, water bottles and matchbox cars. Or when Lily throws her version of a tantrum and shouts to me "I'M NOT YOUR MOMMY ANYMORE MOMMY!!"
How about the feeling like you're constantly expected to be a walking, driving Wikipedia? Check out the recent questions being thrown at me from my 5 year old...


1. How do people die Mom? Do you just drop to the floor and boom your done?

2. Can't God bring you back to life? He is GOD ya know!

3. Mom, if you show someone your butt, you are mooning them so if you show them your pe**s are you sunning them?


As for the 9 yr old, we have conquered "The Talk." Yes, it's officially done. We think it went very pressure for a parent right, just a conversation that your kid will remember his or her entire life! AHHH. He seemed to be very empowered with his new found information, kind of like being let in on a little secret. After all the questions on anatomy, puberty and disease... the funniest one had to be "So Mom, if you don't want any more children in that way, are you and Dad gonna do that AGAIN?"

Ahh...good times. What are some of the Recently Asked Questions coming your way?
